money is going to be put to good use? in the next hour, drew griffin investigated charities and not spending where donors expect. one of the charities under scrutiny is called disabled veterans national foundation, dvnf. remember those initials. there's no sign that the cash donations, more than $56 million over three years, went directly to the men and women who sacrificed so much in war zones. not one dime of that money. the senate finance committee is demanding money from the dvnf. they have launched an investigation into its practices. more on that tonight. drew also uncovered the national veterans foundation, which is taking donations but using only a very small percentage to actually help vets. there are also charities that claim to help abandoned animals but the money trail led somewhere else entirely. baghdad pups is used to reunite military animals but they don't do that at all. in the montreal spca, a canadian charity, received about $13 million in donations over three years but despite all of that money, they've ended up in the hole more than $4.5 million. all of
the injured, two u.s. air force reservists and one navy service member. earlier today, president obama spoke about the tragedy. >> my daughters go to the movies. what if malia and sasha had been at the theater as so many of our kids do every day. michelle and i will be fortunate enough to hug our girls a little tighter tonight and i'm sure you will do the same with your children, but for those parents who may not be so lucky, we have to embrace them and let them know we will be there for them as a nation. so again, i'm so grateful that all of you are here. i am so moved by your support, but there are going to be other days for politics. this i think is a day for prayer and reflection. >> joining me today, "time" magazine deputy washington bureau chief, michael crowley and patricia murphy, contributor to the daily beast. certainly a day of reflection. we are all still processing a lot as it comes to the details of this tragedy. michael, i want to talk about the president's comments, saying this isn't a day for politics, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling
the group filed this tax form claiming it provided more than $838,000 in gifts in kind to u.s. vets, a charity in arizona. u.s. vets showed us what actually was sent. 20 pairs of men's football pants, more than 100 chefs coats, 125 chef's aprons. a needle point design pillow case. two pages worth of stuff the director told us, we don't need. and take a look at what showed up at the st. benedicts veterans center in birmingham, alabama. the modest shipment included some useful items. 2300 disaster blankets good for a couple days' use and some cleaning supplies. but it also included this. >> they sent us 2600 bags of cough drops and 2200 little bottles of sanitizer and 11,520 bags of coconut m&ms and didn't have a lot of use for 11,500 coconut m&ms. >> here's what they posted on their website about the work they were doing in alabama. >> we send by the truckload items that these shelters say they need desperately. >> for our veterans that have given so much to our country and now need our help. >> great sound bite. >> did they ever ask you what you wanted? >> no. they always call and s
, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling for unity. what did you make of his comments? >> it's always a fine line because there are a lot of people who don't want to be hearing about politics, they don't want -- people want to be very careful about not exploiting a terrible tragedy like this. there is a pretty credible counterargument that says you don't turn it into a political fight where you're trying to get an advantage over your enemies and exploit it but i do think it's reasonable to have a national conversation about the context, about why these things happen, whether there are things we can do to prevent tragedies like this. if a plane crashes because you think the aircraft control system wasn't working, you would talk about how to reform it. but guns is such a volatile loaded subject, i think someone like obama and probably mitt romney are going to step back because they know that walking into that conversation immediately just turns into a distorted politicized -- >> mitt romney is expected to make remarks in the next few minutes. we'll bring
threat for us a little bit of hail threat but not a tornado threat. keep in mind of all the severe weather because of that very damaging winds with some of these thunderstorms. that is what we're looking at as the front moves through. tomorrow it spreads farther to the south down to virginia, much of west virginia and down to evansville, indiana. once it goes through temperatures will drop a little bit but we still have this to deal with. chicago you are in clear but st. louis you are like 108, 107 in louisville. take a look at what happens over the next three days or so for us. some of big cities that have been dealing with. kansas city, d.c., chicago and new york, head towards the area on monday but for most part everybody back in the 80s. we do have relief coming but we have to get through today and tomorrow and the rest of the week will look good. >> gregg: so stay in bed and watch the fox news channel. thanks very much. >> heather: did you see that 103 in the nation' capitol. they are on track to break a heat record that was set back in 1930, cooling centers are open all acros
information that could be used as evidence? and we're left with the lingering question and there's no good answer to this yet and that is why did he do that? the new york police commissioner ray kelly had reported that he had his hair painted red and said he was the joker and since then, there has been verification of that, that james holmes, the 24-year-old suspect, did indeed tell police he was the joker, but why is the outstanding question, ron. >> we've got 12 people dead, 71 reported wounded. is there any word as far as the wounded, how many of those 71 might be critically wounded? >> i just talked to some people who were at the hospital, the major hospital where the victims had been brought and they say they're being very closed mouthed. you can understand why and that is because a lot of the family members are trying to be contacted and so, we really don't know. we do know that some people have already been discharged, including a baby who was less than a year old who was inside the theatre, but as far as how many maybe seriously, maybe have life threatening injury, i haven't seen t

of the techniques that the local authorities and federal authorities used to get around the booby traps, the meant went through the window. you saw at that video, them working through the video and they used robots to go inside instead of a person at risk and they used water not only to surround explosives, but used a water blast to short out that main control panel. ultimately, there was a point where the situation was deemed safe enough where people could go inside and gather up some of the rigged explosives. some of those were fireworks rigged specially picked up and put into a dump truck filled with sand and driven to a remote location south of aurora here. and ultimately, those fireworks, the other type of makeshift explosives, were destroyed in a controlled manner. and then the evidence started coming out of the apartment. about 8 p.m. local time people saw laptop computer and a hard drive come out of this apartment and that should prove to be a treasure trove in terms of evidence. diaries this guy wrote and plans laid out and investigators are hoping to find a path of that on the computer a
